NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Paducah Kentucky 
646 am CDT Tuesday Jul 7 2015 


Update... 
updated aviation section for 12z taf issuance 


&& 


Short term...(today through Thursday night) 
issued at 304 am CDT Tuesday Jul 7 2015 


Another round of wet weather is expected in the short term portion 
of the forecast. Locally heavy rainfall is likely. The bulk of the 
rainfall is forecast today through Wednesday evening...followed 
by scattered activity Thursday. 


As of 2 am...the first round of convection is firing up in extreme 
western Kentucky. The high-res models have done a good job 
forecasting these storms...including their timing and areal 
placement. The storms are forecast to develop and spread 
east/northeast across the remainder of west Kentucky and adjacent 
portions of southern Illinois and SW Indiana. 


After the early morning storms exit our region...a surface cold 
front will move southeast to near a kmvn/kmdh/kpof line early this 
evening. A more widespread area of showers and storms will precede 
the front this afternoon. Locally heavy rainfall appears to be a 
good bet given very high precipitation water values and moderately strong 
low level inflow from 30 to 35 knots. 


The models are in excellent agreement that the front will stall 
across western Kentucky late tonight...but convective outflow may 
push the effective boundary into Tennessee. In any case...precipitation 
coverage is forecast to diminish overnight as the air mass 
stabilizes north of the effective boundary. 


On Wednesday and Wednesday night...a weak surface low will develop 
and move northeast across central Illinois. This low will serve to 
pull the front northward across our region on Wednesday. The models 
are in strong agreement that convection will develop along and 
north of the warm front during the afternoon across Illinois and 
Missouri. The storms will diminish or move out Wednesday night. 
The maximum storm total rainfall amounts /today through 
Wednesday/ are forecast to occur in southeast MO and southern Illinois. 
Wpc guidance and office gridded quantitative precipitation forecast have been consistently 
indicating around two inches along and northwest of a kmvn/kmdh 
line...as well as northwest of kcgi. Even though the ground is very 
moist...these amounts are marginal for flash flooding. Will 
mention heavy rainfall in the grids and severe weather potential statement...and hold off on a 
Flash Flood Watch. 


On Thursday and Thursday night...precipitation coverage should tend to be 
more scattered as upper level ridging starts to expand north. 
However...the remnants of the weak frontal boundary will still be 
over our region. Will keep probability of precipitation in the chance category Thursday in 
all areas...and then limit precipitation chances to northern and central 
counties Thursday night. 


Given all the clouds and precipitation...diurnal temperature ranges will be 
quite small...on the order of 10 degrees or so. In the areas of 
highest quantitative precipitation forecast and cloud cover...daytime highs will generally be 
around 80 with overnight lows around 70. 


Long term...(friday through monday) 
issued at 304 am CDT Tuesday Jul 7 2015 


Model preference - a blend of the 00z gefs and 12z European model (ecmwf) with a 
minor incorporation of the 00z European model (ecmwf). 500 mb ridge over the southeast U.S. At 
the start of the period...will drift west and eventually allow more 
prominent northwest flow to develop across the upper Midwest...Great Lakes 
and northeast U.S. 


Have just a small chance of convection far north...i64 Friday as a 
warm front is forecast to move NE. Friday night through the weekend 
we anticipate mainly dry...hot humid weather given the strength of 
the upper high and the drier airmass forecast to accompany it. 
Certainly cannot rule out isolated heat of the day convection with 
coverage generally at or below 10 percent. With northwest flow aloft more of an 
influence Sunday night through Monday...will introduce low chance 
convective probability of precipitation in conjunction with the models depiction of a front 
approaching from the north. Temperatures will be a blend of MOS and 
existing numbers from the previous forecast.

Aviation... 
issued at 646 am CDT Tuesday Jul 7 2015 


The early morning round of showers and storms exited the kpah/kcgi 
areas...but it will continue across the kevv/kowb areas through middle 
morning. MVFR ceilings have become widespread...with patchy IFR ceilings. 
Ceilings will rise above VFR thresholds by midday. 


Another round of showers and storms will arrive later today 
associated with a southeastward moving cold front. The timing of 
this activity is very tricky. It appears there will be a prolonged 
period of rain...mostly from middle afternoon through early evening. 
Low clouds are likely to become widespread as the cold front reaches 
the taf sites after midnight. At this time...IFR conditions appear 
most likely.
